Induction of Osteosarcoma and Biochemical Effects in Rats Treated with Benzopyrene

Authors: Paniagua Perez R, Franco y Bourland R, Madrigal Bujaidar E, Alvarez Gonzalez I, Velasco Mora O, Martinez Coria E, Araujo Monsalvo V, Domínguez Hernandez V, Gonzalez-Cortez J, Straface JI and Luna Mendez Martin

Abstract: Osteosarcoma accounts for 20% of all sarcomas, affects children and young adults, usually originating in lower limb bones and possibly ending in amputation. The murine models identify the molecular and pathophysiological basis of diseases and allow the development of new therapies for their treatment. Benzopyrene (BZP) is an aromatic polycyclic hydrocarbon, reported as a potent cancer inducer. The objective of this work was to standardize a model of bone carcinogenesis in rats.

Isolated Scapula Body Fracture with Intrathoracic Displacement: Description of a New Pattern of Injury

Authors: Ismael Auñón-Martín, MD, PhD, Carlos Olaya-González and Gema Muñoz Sánchez

Abstract: Scapula fractures are relatively rare. Those that affect the body of the scapula account for approximately 50% of all scapula fractures. The indication of surgical treatment in the fractures of the body of the scapula is controversial. One of the indications for surgery is the intrathoracic displacement of a bone fragment. Within the low incidence of this complication, homogeneous anatomical patterns always related to high energy trauma have been described.
